Lots of bloodwork today & another 24hr urine study .. ugh
Did I say I hate the 24hr urine studies? I think I did .. so again .. ugh ugh ugh
They won't just send out the stone -- I have to repeat the study. I guess this is a good thing given the Vit D was so low and now on meds to be sure the calcium levels haven't risen.
They took all sorts of thyroid tests this morning, along with a Metabollic Panel to look @ the Calcium as well as a repeat Vit D via serum now that I'm on the prescription pills and feeling fine on double dose.
So next week I guess the stone + the study travel to a lab out West somewhere .... and I wait for the results.
Maybe they will find something in the center that the stone began forming around? It could help with prevention. Mine have had uric acid crystals in the center and the rest was calcium Oxalate. I take alopurinol for the Uric Acid
